Why More People Are Returning to the Office

Over the last few years, there has been a growing trend of people working from home. Hybrid systems have become the new norm for many companies, with employees working from both the office and home giving full flexibility to management and employees. However, as society begins to return to “normal,” there is an increased interest in returning to the office full-time. 

On the other hand, some companies, as well as startups and entrepreneurs, are exploring other alternatives to traditional offices, such as private offices and executive business centers. These types of flexible workspaces are becoming more popular as companies try to provide their employees with a sense of normalcy and comfort, and the ability to move out of a home office situation. 

Understanding Flexible Workspace

A flexible workspace is a type of shared office that allows people to rent desks or offices on an as-needed basis. In this arrangement, members from different industries share the same space, which can create a sense of community and collaboration. It also allows for saving on different infrastructure aspects of the business including, but not limited to, the office space itself, equipment, and furniture. In some cases, receptionist and custodial services, as well as refreshments and parcel acceptance services are shared to further reduce the costs. 

The first shared workspace was started in San Francisco in 2005, and since then, the industry has grown exponentially due to the benefits of sharing costs, which is secondary to the popularity of being in a community with like-minded professionals. While private offices have been around for a while, the executive business center model with shared access to drop-in areas, lounges, and meeting rooms is a relatively new concept that has only gained popularity in recent years. 

The Benefits of Office Evolution’s Office Spaces 

Unlike a private office, which can be expensive and inflexible, a private office at Office Evolution gives you the opportunity to have a presence in a prime location without a long-term commitment. OE is the perfect example of a modern, executive workspace that offers all the amenities and services you need to be productive and successful. 

Some of the benefits of our executive business center include: 

  • Flexible workspace — Our shared workspace is available on an as-needed basis, so you can use it for as long or as little as you like. This is the perfect place for companies to take advantage of different spaces including private office space, conference rooms, and event spaces inside a single facility. That means you don’t have to worry about finding separate spaces for all your needs. 
  • Amenities and services — Our space comes with all the amenities and services you need to be productive, including high-speed WiFi, a business center, and on-site staff. Our space also has some of the most worker-friendly amenities including complimentary snacks and beverages, parking, as well as a fitness center. 
  • Prime location — Office Evolution’s executive business centers are conveniently located near public transportation, major highways, and a variety of restaurants. This allows for a better work-life balance as you and your employees can easily commute to and from work. 

Why Opt for an Executive Business Center? 

In today’s reality, many employees prefer to have the choice to work from home. In fact, according to an Owl Lab survey, 59% of applicants prefer to have an employer that offers remote work and flexible scheduling. The same survey states that 23% of those who are currently employed would gladly work from home full-time. 

But, there are also many who crave the social interaction and collaboration that comes with working in an office. That’s why providing a hybrid setup where part of the workforce can work from home and the rest can come into the office a few days a week can be the best solution for many businesses. 

Office Evolution executive business center allows you to remove the need for having a single and inflexible traditional office space while still having a place for you and your employees to come into the office when needed.
